The rise and rise of the Fabulous Dorsey brothers is charted in this delightful whymsical step down memory lane. Lots of fun watching Hollywood's more than creative version of their careers.
one of only about three or four films ("I Dood It", "The Fleet's In") with the great Bob Eberle, a truly class act who never minded that his paperboy spent his tip money on Roy Orbison and Paul Anka records.

Subject: What memories!
I saw this in 1948 when I was stationed with the 11th Airborne Division at Camp Crawford, Sapporo, Japan. The music in this movie reminded me of the days when people played things other than the guitar and dressed like civilized grown-ups. No silly names for their bands and no silly behavior on the stage. Just good music. Ah, well, those days are gone forever. But I can still be in reverie in my memories.

Subject: Great Entertainment
Enjoyable from start to finish. They're way before my time but after seeing this movie, I'm a fan of the Dorsey's. This movie is just a small part of their story. Great musicians all around. Janet Blair and Bill Lundigan were class acts in their own right. Best of all I think Vince from the Shamwow commercial is playing the banjo in Tommy's band. LOL!!! Check it out.

Subject: the dorsey brothers
the brothers had two of the best bands during
the period which has become called the big band
era. i remember seeing this movie while i was
stationed in korea in 1946-1948 and i enjoyed it
because it brought great music sounds to me along
with a lot of memories. the movie won't win
any academy awards but the nostalgia it creates
is great to those of us who recall a time of life
when things were much simpler and it seems like
a lot more fun.
